today announced new hardware enhancements,
software updates and capabilities for its IntelliJet(R)
Printing Systems to help high-volume transactional mailers and
service bureaus produce high-quality, personalized color communications.
Pitney Bowes will showcase these enhancements at drupa 2012 in
Dusseldorf, Germany (Hall 4, Stand 4C04).

Hardware Enhancements

Hardware updates include new printhead technology and color inks, which
enable increased 800 feet-per-minute, full-density monochrome printing
speeds on the IntelliJet(R)
30 and IntelliJet(R)
42 Printing Systems, as well as 400 feet-per-minute, monochrome and
full-density color speeds on the IntelliJet(R)
20 Printing System. Pitney Bowes, which uses HP Inkjet Web Press
technology in its IntelliJet Printing System family, will demonstrate
the 800 feet-per-minute, 100 percent variable-data color capabilities
running on the T400 Color Inkjet Web Press in the adjacent HP stand.
Pitney Bowes will show in their stand, the 400 feet-per-minute color
capabilities on the IntelliJet 20 Printing System.

The new inks and printheads also provide crisp images and a broader
color range. These enhancements can help organizations transition their
printed communications from monochrome to color simply and
cost-effectively to produce more effective customer communications. The
color imaging capabilities can also help organizations print high-speed
transaction documents and high-quality customer communications pieces on
the same production line.

Software Updates

Software enhancements include the availability of IntelliJet Print
Process Manager 3.1. The IntelliJet Print Process Manager is the
workflow engine that powers the Pitney Bowes family of IntelliJet(R)
Printing Systems. The IntelliJet Print Process Manager 3.1 offers 64 bit
platform support to enable higher performance processing of critical
print applications including extended and scalable high resolution PDF
document workflows. Expanded PDF support allows organizations to process
100 percent variable data, four-color jobs at full production speed, and
transform and process Metacode, LCDS, AFP, AFPDS, PS, PDF and PCL
formats with the highest integrity. The expanded PDF capability can help
customers easily scale processing power to meet their evolving printing
needs. The software can also optimize document output for mail finishing
on Pitney Bowes inserting systems.

The IntelliJet Print Process Manager 3.1 also includes an ink estimation
tool to enable customers to identify ink usage consumption and the costs
of production for print jobs. In addition, the software includes
enhanced color management enabling more options for the control of color
to achieve improved results and true balance between quality and cost.

The IntelliJet Print Process Manager 3.1 is available for customer
specific shipment now and for general availability at the end of July
2012.

New Capabilities

In addition to the hardware and software updates, Pitney Bowes’s
IntelliJet Printing System family now supports a fully integrated
camera-based content verification solution and a new zero-speed splicer
and turret rewinder.

Videk’s DocuVision 8600 system provides real-time, page-level content
verification at full press speed. This includes barcode and MICR
character quality analysis/readability and personalized variable data
verification. Validation of information, accuracy of one-to-one
messaging and proof of production output helps provide enhanced job
integrity for complex transactional mail applications. Used in tandem
with the IntelliJet Printing System family, transactional mailers and
printers can increase productivity, reduce waste, and manage data for
enhanced audit trails.

Pitney Bowes’s IntelliJet 42 Printing System also now supports a new
zero-speed splicer and turret rewinder. Ideal for in-line finishing, the
zero-speed splicer reduces the time it takes to load and splice rolls in
the unwind unit. The turret rewinder provides an alternative to in-line
finishing to offload completed rolls without stopping the printer.

“We are continuing to make investments in our IntelliJet Printing
Systems to help meet the needs of high-volume transactional mailers
around the world,” said Ramesh Ratan, president of Pitney Bowes Document
Messaging Technologies. “The new technology updates and capabilities we
are adding to the IntelliJet Printing Systems will help increase the
quality, productivity and efficiency for printing high-impact color
communications.”

The Pitney Bowes(R) IntelliJet Print Process Manager powers the IntelliJet
Printing Systems to produce high-quality complex color or monochrome
customer communications at full print speed. The IntelliJet Printing
System family leverages proven HP inkjet technology to offer 1,200
nozzles-per-inch native resolution and nozzle redundancy for robust
print quality.

Pitney Bowes(R) Production Intelligence(R) software allows mailers to
integrate print and mail with one streamlined platform for unprecedented
process integration and control, greater print and mail precision and
end-to-end system integrity. The IntelliJet(R) family of printing systems
is a key component to delivering more powerful, relevant customer
communications. Only Pitney Bowes offers an end-to-end solution that can
help print and mail operations migrate to a White
Paper Factory(TM) solution that includes output management, production
print, mail finishing, envelope wrapping and inline on-envelope
printing, for greater productivity, operational cost savings made
possible by lean, highly efficient document manufacturing. All of these
systems are backed by a single service and support team for peak
efficiency and performance. Together, these elements result in a truly
integrated solution for companies where mail plays a strategic role in
customer communications.
